Searches soar for Tuscany as Amanda & Alan’s second home goes up for sale

  • Searches for the region of Tuscany (+39%) and the city of Lucca (+60%) in Italy have soared compared to this time last year
  • The spike in searches comes as Amanda & Alan’s Italian Job Season 2 is filmed in the area, prompting viewers to search for where they could live nearby
  • The home renovated by Amanda Holden & Alan Carr is now up for sale, and can be seen here:

New data from the UK’s biggest overseas property website Rightmove reveals that searches have soared for the region of Tuscany and the city of Lucca, near where Amanda & Alan’s Italian Job Season 2 is filmed.

Since the program aired in January, searches for Tuscany have jumped by 39%, while searches for Lucca have soared by 60% compared to the same period last year.

Amanda & Alan’s Italian Job sees Amanda Holden and Alan Carr renovating a second property following the first series last year which took place in Sicily.

The renovated property is now up for sale and can be seen on Rightmove here:

Tim Bannister, Rightmove’s property expert said: “Rightmove is the place people turn to first to see all types of properties for sale, from all around the globe. We often see what’s happening in the world reflected in search behaviour on site, and it’s fascinating to see spikes in searches for Tuscany and Lucca as the second series of Amanda & Alan’s Italian Job aired, with people imagining what it would be like to live there, or possibly what it would be like to take on their own renovation project in the area.”

Roy Santi, Director & Estate Agent at Dimore Toscane said: “The property is a little jewel with truly dramatic vistas of the river and mountains. The renovation respects the traditional materials and detailing present in this type of rural Tuscan home.”
